Los Angeles–Women’s footwear brand Chinese Laundry has announced a new partnership with SGFootwear, a division of SG Companies, a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of footwear nationwide.

This collaboration will introduce new categories in slippers, flip flops and a children’s collection, allowing Chinese Laundry to expand their brand portfolio and product offering.

“We are excited for this partnership and are looking forward to introducing these new lines to our consumers,” said Bob Goldman, CEO of Chinese Laundry. “Now that we have established our current divisions within the footwear industry, it was only natural to tap into these categories and reinforce our position as a leading brand offering quality and fashion at competitive price points.”

The line is broken down into three tiers: Chinese Laundry (retails: $28 to $42); CL by Laundry ($22 to $38); and Dirty Laundry ($24 to $40).
